I am having trouble getting my 8310 to play an audio stream from my Darwin streaming server. I have tested the stream in Quicktime and VLC and it plays fine, but when I go to it on my BlackBerry it seems to initialize, I get the (correct) audio time at the bottom and the timer / scroll bar behave mostly as you would expect them to when playing a clip.
The only problem however is there is zero audio output.
I am using the following commands to make the file:
faac test.wav -q 347 -o test.aac
mp4creator -create=test.aac -hint=1 -optimize test.mp4
and they look like this when done:
Track Type Info
1 audio MPEG-2 AAC LC, 168.960 secs, 32 kbps, 8000 Hz
2 hint Payload mpeg4-generic for track 1
Anybody see where I am going wrong?

I'm in the exact same boat. I also have a BlackBerry Storm which plays the stream back and progresses perfectly, either as pure audio or audio and video but I get no sound output. I'm also using Darwin. Have you solved this problem or have any leads that would help me troubleshoot?
I've tried constant bit rate, I've tried turning off parametric stereo when encoding. I'm not sure where to go next. Any ideas?

8310 / 8320 here...
Have not solved the problem yet, but the closest I have come is taking one of the sample mp4 files that comes with DSS (which work fine), stripping out the video and audio, and then re-muxing them into a new mp4 file. This ends up with the audio playing (albeit choppy and broken) before the video loop starts.

So far the only thing I've gotten to stream on Darwin to my Curve is AMR-NB, but sound quality is totally unacceptable. I've tried encoding in AAC in every which way using differing birates, AAC-LC vs. HE-AAC. I've tried mpeg4-generic hinting vs. mpeg4-latm hinting. I've used different encoders FAAC vs. NeroEncoder. I'm starting to question if this is even possible.
Can someone confirm streaming AAC with a URL on a Curve 8300 running OS 184.108.40.206? I'm using AT&T's network.
